Trinity Animation Founder Authors 3D Studio Book
Trinity Animation’s president Jim Lammers co-authored this beginner’s book on Autodesk’s 3D Studio version 4 with Michael Todd Peterson in 1995.
Partly due to 3D Studio 4 being the last DOS-based version (and the new “3DS Max” requiring Windows NT, a 3D accelerated video card and considerably more resources) this book sold much longer than usual and was ultimately translated to many other languages.
Lammers began writing the animation for beginners’ book not long after beginning to work full time in 3D imagery with Trinity Animation in August of 1994. The book, its schedule and the editorial requirements were challenging for Lammers to Pearson/New Riders Publishing brought on veteran tech writer Michael Todd Peterson to help Lammers get the book completed.
